'Little Britain's Matt Lucas to move to the US

Tuesday August 30, 2011

Matt Lucas has revealed he's moving to the United States to "make a go of it over there".

The Little Britain actor has already landed a lead role in forthcoming film Small Apartments and played a cameo in hit film Bridesmaids.

The comedian is hoping to crack America like stars Ricky Gervais and Hugh Laurie.

"Next is a series of the Matt Lucas Awards which we did a pilot for on BBC One, then I am moving to the United States to try and make a go of it over there," he told Dawn French and Jennifer Saunders on their BBC Radio Two show.

"But I'm going to keep my place here and try and split my time. I'll still be walking with my dog in Hyde Park."
